  • Change the location of the BIOS clear or password jumper or DIP switch on the computer motherboard. CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, JCMOS1, CLR, CLRPWD, PASSWD, PASSWORD, PSWD, or PWD are all common names for this jumper. Remove the jumper from the two pins that are currently covered and place it over the remaining two jumpers to clear.
  • On the System Disabled screen, there is a 5 to 8 character code. You can try to extract a 5 to 8-character code from the machine, which you can use to reset the BIOS password.
  • Dip switches, jumpers, jumping BIOS, or rewriting BIOS can all be used to clear the system.
